    whos got one?

    i really like the idea of the brain training.

    there about £120 in the shops, and not much cheaper on ebay at about £80+ second hand.


    i cant afford to spend that much really on a console.

    anyone know anywhere cheap to get them?

    OH had a DS lite, but I stole it from him :D
    I love it! Mostly things like Brain Training, Puzzle Quest and Picross. We did consider having one each but it seemed like a bit of a waste of money. One definately wasn't a waste of money - we have a Wii and a PS2 but the DS gets far more use.

    i have a DS and I really like it
    I think 80 for a used one is reasonable.

    maby i will have to wait for the sales after xmas.

    they usually reduce lots then.

    and check the local papers.

    i hate being tight for money

    DD has a DS she bought June'06with bday money for about 90 pounds. Surprised they're still that much.

    Anyway - they're great! Love New Mario Bros, Mario Cart, Brain Training, Tetris, DD loves, Nintendogs, Mama Cookery something, Harvest Moon.

    Go for it!

    Me too :cheer:

    They are well worth it.

    I'm completely hooked on Animal Crossing at the moment. I like Brain Training but I found it too easy to get 20 (top brain age) and then it gets boring.....

    The best cheapo game is Zoo Keeper, SO addicitve, and Elite Beat Agents is good fun :D

    Have you had a look on amazon. My dad got one last year for christmas, he loves it.

    I bloody hate the brain training one because on the bit where you have to say what colour is on the screen the bloody nintendo doesnt understand me when i say blue. :roll:
